Blessing Quotes

Change, like sunshine, can be a friend or a foe, a blessing or a curse, a dawn or a dusk.

William A. Ward

When we lose one blessing, another is often, most unexpectedly, given in its place.

C.S. Lewis

Not in rewards, but in the strength to strive, the blessing lies.

J. T. Towbridge

Technology without hatred can be a blessing. Technology with hatred is always a disaster.

Simon Wiesenthal

May Peace be your gift at Christmas and your blessing all year through!

Unknown

Life is a mixed blessing, which we vainly try to unmix.

Mignon McLaughlin

It is a blessing in disguise

Proverb

Death is really a great blessing for humanity without it there could be no real progress. People who lived for ever would not any hamper and discourage the young, but they would themselves lack sufficient Stimulus to be creative.

Alfred Adler

Somehow, not only for Christmas, But all the long year through, The joy that you give to others, Is the joy that comes back to you. And the more you spend in blessing, The poor and lonely and sad, The more of your heart's possessing, Returns to you glad.

John Greenleaf Whittier

People see you as an object, not as a person, and they project a set of expectations onto you. People who don't have it think beauty is a blessing, but actually it sets you apart.

Candace Bergen

The increase of blessing is not interrupted by God, unless thanksgiving is interrupted by the slaves.

Muhammad ibn Al_al Taqi

One tortured soul I know who suffers from amazingly premature ejaculation -- I mean so premature that he hasn't got any children after eleven years of marriage -- was told by the priest that it was probably a blessing in disguise. What a piece of advice to give to a poor sod who comes off at the sound of his wife's car in the drive.

Tom Baker

Marriage is a fight to the death, before which the wedded couple ask a blessing from heaven, because it is the rashest of all undertakings to swear eternal love; the fight at once commences and victory, that is to say liberty, remains in the hands of the cleverer of the two.

Honor de Balzac

I care not what black spiritual crisis we may come through or what delightful spiritual Canaan we may enter, no blessing of the Christian life becomes continually possessed unless we are men and women of regular, daily, unhurried, secret lingerings in prayer.

J. Sidlow Baxter

Every living thing was shunning him. Poor little Peter Pan, he sat down and cried, and even then he did not know that, for a bird, he was sitting on his wrong part. It is a blessing that he did not know, for otherwise he would have lost faith in his power to fly, and the moment you doubt whether you can fly, you cease forever to be able to do it. The reason birds can fly and we can't is simply that they have perfect faith, for to have faith is to have wings.

Sir James Matthew Barrie

Christianity may produce agitation, anger, tumult as at Ephesus; but the diffusion of the pure gospel of Christ, and the establishment of the institutions of honesty and virtue, at whatever cost, is a blessing to mankind.

Albert Barnes

Jesus, give the weary Calm and sweet repose. With Thy tend'rest blessing May our eyelids close.

Sabine Baring-Gould

We will make a great and awful mistake if we fail to settle Hebron, neighbor and predecessor of Jerusalem, with a large Jewish settlement, constantly growing and expanding, very soon. This will also be a blessing to the Arab neighbors. Hebron is worthy to be Jerusalem's sister.

David Ben Gurion

I bless a society that tolerates and supports an eternal childhood for some, a childhood whose playfulness can in turn be a blessing to society.

Allan David Bloom

Surely it is more honourable to do great things, than to speak or read great things!...When a Christian has one eye upon his book, the other should be looking up to heaven for a blessing upon what he reads.

Thomas Brooks
